I have been offering Yoga Teacher Trainings since 2016 at Ananda Yoga and Detox Center in Koh Phangan, Thailand. Many reviews for my program are on their Trip Advisor Page. I’ve made unedited screenshots for you to see, and feel free to visit and see for yourself.
Johnny is absolutely someone you can trust with such a big task and you’ll just want to keep learning from him. his knowledge and passion is beyond inspiring.
Melissa is the most vibrant, Beautiful and fun loving assistant he could possibly ask for and compliments his teaching style perfectly. She often felt like a big sister guiding us and getting us ready for the path ahead.
Ali is wise and comforting and delves deep into some fascinating subjects. Make the most of her classes and ask as many questions as you can,
This team come together to bring you extensive training both physically and theoretically, they have created a fool proof system and it works !
The resort itself is magical and inviting !
The staff and even the owners were so welcoming to everyone you really become apart of their family. If I could do it again 10000 times over I absolutely would!
Just wait for the food too!!! It was sooooo good I’m missing it like crazy
BOOK TODAY, YOU’LL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL ❤️
The course that Jonny Nasello has put together is challenging and extremely rewarding at the same time. I was really pushed out of my comfort zone but it was definitely worth it because it has given me the confidence to teach yoga. The TTC he has developed definitely works.
We were practice teaching from very early on so by the end of the course I was very confident to teach a full class. I only completed the training five weeks ago and have already started to teach classes back home in Australia.
Johnny’s beautiful wife Ali Choi adds a beautiful balanced energy to the course and teaches the Ayurveda classes and meditation classes. I was lucky enough to have her check me in when I got there. As I was a little nervous on arrival her energy found a way to calm me down.
Melissa Scheinwald and Franciska Bodnar did a great job at pulling all the students together to learn for the month. There were some days that we were overwhelmed with information and Asanas, but the girls would just sort us out so all the information would sink into us. Every day we got better and better. I was very impressed and loved the way it all came together.
All four teachers live and breathe the yogi life. It was very inspiring to be with them for the month.
The accommodation is basic but it works. I stayed in my own room. I used the pool almost every day and night after our classes. The food was very good. It was great to not have to think about what food to buy as we were fed 7 days a week breakfast, lunch and dinner. They were very accommodating to me as I have a funny diet. I did go out and eat sometimes on Sundays.
I rented a motorbike and explored the island on Sundays.
I would love to do another course with these teachers again one day.
If your thinking about doing your YTT I highly recomened this one.
Until this day, I still bother Johnny for anything I don’t understand about yoga, or when I am coming out with new pose I want to teach and not quite sure about my cues.
I miss my folks a lot and I recommend everyone to join the class, either for the yoga teacher training or just a yoga retreat, teachers there are really nice, friendly people.
Whatever you go after for, I wish you the best luck. Namaste~
Last but not least
If you are looking for a 200 hours YTT, I am sure you won’t be disappointed to choose Ananda as your “home”!
